A159914

[Published Opinion] The Court of Appeal held that, under the plain language of Penal Code section 1203.2, subdivision (b)(1), a court is required to receive a parole agency’s written report before ruling on a parole revocation petition initiated by a district attorney. This is the case even when such a petition is filed against a lifetime parolee, because the report is not pointless even though a court has no discretion to impose intermediate sanctions.
